The style on The Crown is so lavish, it’s easy to see how the budget is rumored to be over $100 million dollars. Michele Clapton, three-time Emmy-winning designer, spoke on all the research that was required for the show, as well as moments that allowed for full creative power.
On dressing Margaret, Clapton told Grazia Daily, “For her costumes, I wanted to look at the movement outside of the royal family – what was really going on. We also hand painted and beaded this lovely mink colored dress for a scene when she gives a speech at the American embassy, and I just thought, ‘I’m going to put great big pockets in it.’ I loved the idea of her having pockets in this evening dress so that she could swagger around, and Vanessa loved that too. With Margaret, everything was just a little better cut – the coats were a bit longer, there was just a bit more thought about it. I enjoyed playing the two sisters against each other.”
We all love movies! ~However~, we can all agree that there are things that happen in movies that are unrealistic AF.
Well, recently, Reddit user CodeBrode asked, “What are some examples of ‘Movie Logic’ that don’t work in real life?” and these responses will give the you validation that you NEED!
Here are a few of the biggest lies movies have told us:
This “cover me” lie:
“People who work in retail or as a waiter/waitress just saying ‘cover me’ to their co-worker and leaving in the middle of a shift to go take care of a personal matter, catch a murderer, etc. You can’t just tell a waitress to cover twice as many tables like that. It won’t work. And you won’t work either, ’cause you’ll get fired.”
“In that scene where the good guy gets completely surrounded by bad guys with guns. I understand the principle, but if those guys actually opened fire, they’d just end up shooting each other in the face. Fields of fire, people!”
